Work Injury vs Workers’ Compensation

Often, when you’re injured at work, you’ll file a workers’ comp claim. These claims should be covered by your employer, but sometimes, your employer or their insurance provider may try to deny your claim.

However, a workers’ comp claim isn’t your only option. If you can’t file for workers’ compensation, you may be able to file a  personal injury lawsuit. A personal work injury claim covers injuries that were caused as a result of someone’s carelessness or negligence that directly impacted your health and safety.

Common Workplace Injuries

  • Repetitive Motion Injuries

    Repetitive motion injuries are gradual in onset and caused by the cumulative effects of repetitive traumatic events. There’s a section of the South Carolina Code of Laws that classifies repetitive motion injuries and the claims that can be made for rightful compensation.

  • Slip-and-Fall Injuries

    Slip-and-fall injuries are among the most common onsite personal injuries in a workplace. Employer or co-worker negligence often contributes to the slip-and-fall incident, creating a chain of evidence that helps you press your rightful claim for compensation.

  • Back Injuries

    Injuries to the upper or lower back are typical results of work injury incidents. You may also suffer serious spinal cord damage that limits your mobility for the rest of your life, which increases your options to press a claim.

  • Broken Bones

    Not surprisingly, on-the-job work injuries typically result in broken bones that require weeks or months to properly heal. You can seek compensation for these injuries as well as the lost wages over the amount of time it takes to heal from the fractures.

Common FAQ’s

  • How do I know to file a worker’s comp claim vs. a personal work injury claim?

    If you’ve been injured at work, and you have proof of the injury, most workers in your position are entitled to worker’s compensation. However, if you’re not eligible for workers comp, your accident was caused by an outside party, or your employer tried to injure you, you might need to file a personal injury claim instead. Speak to your lawyer about your options so that you file the right claim for your needs.

  • How do I prove an injury occurred at work?

    Be sure to document the injury and report the incident to your immediate supervisor. Take pictures of the injury and any equipment that may have contributed to the incident. Ask any co-workers who were witnesses if they’d be willing to provide sworn statements that back the details of your claim. Anything that can prove the incident occurred as you described will help support your claim.

  • What if my employer refuses to file a worker’s compensation claim?

    In the event your employer fails to file a worker’s comp claim on your behalf, they are technically breaking the law. If this happens, you should file a personal work injury claim to seek rightful compensation. Additionally, you should speak with your attorney about filing a separate lawsuit against the employer for failing to protect your rights on the job site.
